Konami Launches BattleBots Slot

Konami Gaming, Inc. launched the first slot game based on BattleBots, the robot combat competition show, during the taping of the television show’s World Championship.

The industry’s first BattleBots slot machine was previewed at Caesars Entertainment Studios during the new season taping and 2021 World Championship. This never-before-seen slot game includes some of BattleBots’ most iconic robot competitors like Tombstone, Witch Doctor, HyperShock and more. BattleBots slots take players on a combat to cash as robots strike, swing, shove, slice, and smash with each spin.

“For more than two decades, BattleBots fans have taken part in the competition’s most exciting moments. Now BattleBots slots are taking robot fighting time to the casino floor, as another way to join in iconic scenes and machines from the show—with a cash chance,” said Edward Roski (Trey), BattleBots creator and CEO. “Teams and audiences here at the 2021 World Championship event have been truly wowed by the slot game’s unique creativity and massive presence. We’re thrilled to work with Konami to bring BattleBots to the gaming arena.”

“When people across the world watch BattleBots, it gives a sense of excitement, competition, curiosity, and wit unlike any other competition,” said Tom Jingoli, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Konami Gaming. “There is no combat sport quite like BattleBots. And there’s no casino slot quite like BattleBots. We put the BattleBots into a casino slot—where the battle is a bonus and the Giant Nut is a Grand Jackpot.”

The game is housed on Konami’s new Dimension 75C cabinet, which features a 75-inch curved screen in 4K Ultra High-Definition (UHD). Konami will also be making the series available on its award-winning Dimension 49J cabinet. The slot game’s general release is scheduled for next year.
